  • I haven't been too keen on the small stuff. I prefer larger and even heavier, it's more comfortable to me. I also like fast glass and a heavier body balances better, maybe that's part of it. But I ...
  • In a recent thread I discussed shopping for a new body. My EM1 was great in a lot of ways but lower light AF wasn't one of them and I do a lot of that. Not terrible but definitely behind nearly ...
  • FWIW i bought a GX850. It seems much more sure handed than my olympus. So much so im selling it. The Panny focuses faster, especially with eye AF. It seems a great combo, D700 with big aperture for ...
  • Good guess but no. It refers to the number of gender checkboxes currently listed on US college apllications.
  • Replied in half true
    None of the blur proponents claimed reality must be reflected. How you can turn this around is amazing. This entire conversation, more than just this occasion, happens bc certain people claim bg ...
  • Im not familiar with the Canons lens issue but id recommend Panasonic either way. IMO they are the best overall choice in the compact market.
  • The farther away we look with our eyes the less double vision there is among relatively close objects. Due to this a distant landscape to our natural vision looks a lot more like a wide DOF lens ...
  • Replied in Recent?
    No i think YOU are assuming we all view these shots in the same way. Maybe if you were on a mobile forum you would be right, but in case its not apparent, most users here are ILC owners. We are not ...
  • I will have to look him up, ive said the same thing here many times. When we focus on something close to us the background is double vision blurred, it's not exactly the same as bokeh but it still ...

    Not true. We have DOF computations like macro, DR stacking, super rez from stacking, and thin DOF processing. Out of the 4 most prominent forms of CP, only one is to garner narrower DOF.
  • Oddly, several times i have boasted, often to the dismay of naysayers, how a good amount of DOF control can be had for bargain prices. I guess this is me bragging about a club thats all inclusive?
  • One setup in my kit is FF. For just over $500 i got a D700 and YN 100f/2. Thats 50mm of FF aperture, a very good AF system, big VF and great color output for $520. Having deals like this around ...

    Haha bingo. We like it. This is the answer that some dont want to hear. What they want to say is that we shouldnt like it, simply bc they dont.
  • Considering there are plenty of very fast 35mm lenses made many decades ago, i dont think its recent at all. Id say theres more people in the hobby now and with far more photo sharing. Amazingly ...
  • Replied in AF issue
    No. LV focusing is faultless. Any documentation saying otherwise is propaganda.
  • Thx for that insight Joe. Its unexpectedly difficult to find good objective comparison between the two sides. Short of renting multiple systems and lenses all we really have to go on is random ...
  • Ok in compact fixed lens options, theres a few. RX100, LX10, Canon Gxx line. The canon and sony have bigger sensors but the Panasonic has a f1.4-2.8 lens to even the score. IMO the LX10 has the ...
  • Really depends on how compact you need. If the Sony is a bit too small would a bridge cam be better? The FZ1000 is a very popular choice. One more option is to get a MFT body with a lens that ...
  • Replied in AF issue
    There has to be a mistake on your part. Its impossible for ML to have AF errors, they focus on the image plane. This seems to be either a troll thread or user error, clearly the camera/lens are ...
  • Hi M. FWIW i used to own a GX8 and didnt like its C-AF. But i also dont use bursts when i shoot so maybe thats why it seemed poor. I have a GX850 arriving on Monday from Adorama so it will be fun ...
